Richmond primarily is known for two things: Being the former Capital of the Confederacy and the home of global cigarette pushing. In recent years, Richmond has earned another designation to the outside world as the home of underground metal. Proof of this less contentious appellation happens this weekend with the four-day Stoner Hands of Doom Fest XIII running from Thursday through Sunday, Nov. 7-10, at Strange Matter. Thrown by the Eye of the Stoned Goat, the festival features 38 underground metal-makers from across the country who will descend on the city to blare their hearts of darkness as part of the traveling metal fest. From the scorched-earth, instrumental sludge of South Carolina’s Compel to the autochthonous offerings of locals Druglord and Gritter, a bounty of bands will make you feel good about bad thoughts. strangematterrva.com.
